We had a fun night, with food, friends and drink. I tried to stick to what I know works for me. My party selections were my own mock potato salad, cheese (no crackers) my own sugar-free, gluten-free banana bread, cantaloupe. Before anyone got here I had a beef stick and some cheese.
Somewhere into the third class of wine I decided the crumbs in the bottom of the corn chip bowl looked good. I'd estimate I ate the equivalent of maybe 3-4 full sized chips.
What I did do a little different is that 3 different times, I took the PGx, 2 each time. That is two more than I'd been taking the last couple of days. The suggested does tops out at 4 before EACH MEAL. And what I can say is that while I did take a taste of this or that (like with the chips) I was so full, I didn't want to continue eating anything in any great amount. So it is working in that regard. In fact, that cheese I had earlier with the beef stick...I poured some curds out onto a paper towel to let them come to room temperature before eating. By the time I got to them, the PGx must have expanded, because I ate a few curds and then just didn't want the rest. I gave them to my husband.
That does make me wonder if any of that gain is all that fiber still making it's way through. I drank at least 100 oz. of water over the course of the night that would have been absorbed by the fiber. And I weighed at 9 am. Sometimes that makes a difference. So does not sleeping well, most of the time. I flipped and flopped a lot last night, though I didn't get up.
Time will tell. I'm thinking the PGx is a good thing.
Today DH has said will be a 'nice day.' I'm not sure how nice, but it may include some outdoor activity. Even if this gain is 'real' I should be able to get it off before the week is out. 21 days before my birthday, which I also already know will need recovery time as far as weight goes.
